Mets' T.J. Rivera: Out until at least July
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera (elbow) will be out until at least July, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

He is still "a ways away" from appearing in minor-league rehab games, according to assistant general manager John Ricco. There are some benchmarks in his rehab that he still needs to hit after undergoing Tommy John surgery in September of 2017. The return timetables for position players who undergo the procedure is typically mixed, but this new timetable suggests there may have been a setback of sorts, or perhaps he's just not progressing at a typical pace.

Mets' T.J. Rivera: Begins throwing program
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera (elbow) began a throwing program last week and has progressed to playing catch from about 45 feet, Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record reports.

When spring training opened, Rivera, who underwent Tommy John surgery last September, was hopeful that he would be ready to play by late April. The Mets apparently weren't as optimistic about his recovery and placed Rivera on the 60-day disabled list Feb. 18, ensuring that he would be unavailable for the first two months of the season. Since being moved to the DL, Rivera doesn't seem to have encountered any setbacks in his rehab, but he shouldn't be considered fully healthy until he plays the field in back-to-back minor-league contests. Once he's activated, Rivera will likely be ticketed for a utility role with the Mets.

Mets' T.J. Rivera: Moves to 60-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mets placed Rivera (elbow) on the 60-day disabled list Sunday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

New York needed to open up a 40-man roster spot to make room for newly signed starting pitcher Jason Vargas, so it was an easy decision for the team to shift Rivera to the 60-day DL to facilitate the move. Though Rivera previously stated that he was optimistic that he would be able to return from Tommy John surgery and return from the DL shortly after Opening Day, it appears the Mets weren't as confident in the utility man's timeline. Once Rivera is able to take part in a slew of rehab games with the Mets' minor-league affiliates, he could join the big club at some point in June, likely acting as a bench option in the infield.

Mets' T.J. Rivera: Expects to begin throwing soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera (elbow) said last week that he's hopeful to resume throwing later in spring training and gradually progress to hitting after that, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

Rivera is still in the process of rehabbing his right elbow after undergoing Tommy John surgery in mid-September, with the Mets projecting him to return at some point in May. The utility infielder is optimistic that he'll be able to beat the team's projected return date, though he acknowledged that he won't be ready to go by Opening Day. With Rivera set to open the season on the disabled list, Jose Reyes and Wilmer Flores look primed to serve as the top backups at multiple infield spots.

Mets' T.J. Rivera: Hoping to return before May
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera (elbow) said Monday that he's hopeful to make a full recovery from Tommy John surgery and rejoin the Mets by May, Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record reports.

Rivera's Sept. 14 surgery will take him out of the running for the wide-open competition for the second-base job during spring training, as he has yet to resume throwing. Rivera is hopeful that he'll be able to play catch once spring training begins, but since he would still have to clear a few more hurdles beyond that before being able to play in games, he's set to open the 2018 campaign on the disabled list. Once healthy, Rivera may have to settle for a utility role if the Mets are satisfied with their everyday options at the four infield and two corner-outfield spots.
